Bowlers at Irvine Winton raised a flag to thank all our NHS heroes.

Irvine Winton Bowling Club were supporting health workers fighting on the frontline of the crisis.

The club also raised a flag for VE Day’s 75th anniversary, as members await the return to the club after being stuck at home for the start of the season.

President Calum McClean said: “The green is being maintained, and is ready for use when this crisis is over. Thanks to Ian Tremble who continues to go above and beyond.”


Scotland is in lockdown. Shops are closing and newspaper sales are falling fast. We’re not exaggerating when we say that the future of the Irvine Times, and the vital local news service we’ve provided since 1873, is under threat.

Please consider supporting the Irvine Times in whatever way you can – by paying just 90p for a copy of the paper, when you’re shopping for essential supplies for yourself and others, or by subscribing to our e-edition here.

Thanks – and stay safe.
